Need help with what was to be my final itinerary in Australia

Jump to last reply

This was to be my final itinerary.

Sydney October 22- 29
Ayers Rock Oct 29 – 31
Brisbane Oct 31 – Nov 4 (These are the only non-negotiable dates)
Melbourne Nov 4- Arrive 5.15pm and leave 9.20 am Nov 8
Cairns Nov8-16
Sydney 16-17 depart NYC

Had wanted to go to Port Douglas, but everything is twice as expensive or sold out the week I am there because of the Solar Eclipse so had to settle for Cairns.

One of the days in Melbourne is a holiday with everything closed.
One of my questions, am I shortchanging Melbourne and do I have too many days in Cairns?

I am not a diver but enjoy snorkeling, though am not the fittest since my knee replacement this year. Should I buy a 3 trip pass with Great Adventures because I want to go to the outer reefs, and see some of the others, Or am I better off booking separate day trips with individual owners.

Also want to do the One Way Skyrail Experience, One Way Kuranda Scenic Railway & Djabugay Rainforest Tour.

I have booked my internal flights with VirginAustralia air pass which can be changed without penalty as long as the fares are the same.
